It has been announced, the semifinal game will be played in the Thunderbowl at 4:30 on Saturday and broadcast on ESPN 3.

I will get my tickets first thing Monday morning. This is going to be awesome and in my opinion the most important game ever played in Pueblo.

9 news in Denver did a good story on CSU Pueblo being in the final four so I decided to post it here!

PUEBLO, Colo. (December 6, 2014) – The No. 8 Colorado State University-Pueblo ThunderWolves (12-1, 8-1) edged No. 9 Ohio Dominican University (11-2, 9-1) 31-28, Saturday, in the NCAA Division II Quarterfinals to advance to its first ever appearance in the national semifinals.

The victory moved CSU-Pueblo's NCAA Playoff record to 3-4 since 2010 and advanced the Pack to the semifinals for not only the first time in program history, but also the Division II era of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The ThunderWolves can now look forward to Dec. 13's opponent, West Georgia University. The sixth-seed in NCAA Super Region Two, WGU defeated Valdosta State University, 31-17 Saturday. The NCAA Selection Committee determined the ThunderWolves will host West Georgia Dec. 13 at 4:30 p.m. at the Neta & Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl.

FYI tickets are selling out fast if you want to attend. As of 4 pm today here is how its looking:

Section A is 20% full, B is 90% full, C is full, E 90% full, U about 40% full, V 60% full, X is 90% full, Y about 80%. Can't tell how the general admission ticket sections are but so far so good.

This needs to be a sellout, far too important game for it not to be!

For the what its worth column SHSU is still talking about the loss to Pueblo lol.

This is what they said lately.

(1) Games at EWU and (moreso) at LSU aren't easy, but a home loss to Colorado St-Pueblo is probably one of the worst among FCS playoff teams. What caused the Bearkats to struggle at the start of this season, and what has changed as they came down the homestretch to transform into a team that finished the season on top of the Southland Conference?

Sam Houston State came into the CSU-Pueblo game expecting an easy win, which caused it to come out flat against a very talented Division II team. And while there's no excuse for losing the way they did, I honestly believe CSU-Pueblo was better than at least half the teams in the Southland Conference.

Also, from what I read the west stands are sold out and the east stands are over 80% sold out.

Question Pack the underdog

National Columnist Bob Eblen and the blogger for the super region 2 and 4 this time Andy Davis have predicted Pueblo to lose the game on Saturday. Bob only by 1 point and Andy by 2. So now officially CSU Pueblo is the underdog this weekend. This has been typical for the Pack all season and I think they will more then meet the challenge and win by 14 points.

Update:

I was talking with Andy on line and he said while he thinks UG will win Pueblo is considered the favorite going into the game and really its anyone's game why he only said by 2. Kind of makes sense. The betting odds are Pueblo by 7 1/2 points.

Wolves are up 7-3 at the half!

Problem is the Thunderwolves only got 3.

Twolves with a Touchdown! 10 - 7 with 9:47 left.
